I've decided to make an attempt at Veneering 101 and see how I go.
Couple of questions for those who have been through this before:
Let's say we're talking about a medium sized (300mm X 300mm?) box-type
thing. And .06mm veneer.
I know that differential movement between the veneer and the backer
can cause problems. Can MDF or 10mm ply be used as the backer,
realizing that it's going to be completely covered by the veneer and/
or the lining material?
of the box before or after assembly? In other words do I cut, say,
the plywood side panels slightly larger than necessary, veneer them,
then cut the veneered panel down to exact requirements OR should I
assemble/glue up the ply carcass, and THEN apply the veneer? (I
expect I'll be using mitred joints for the box.)
Most of my projects' best features began as mistakes!

That's some thin veneer! Is it transparent?
